あげる would be the word that means "give". But what if I were to give someone something that I am not sure if it will benefit the person or the person might not like. In this case, あげる would probably be a very bad word. For example:
ケーキをあげる - give you cake
あげる doesn't seem to be appropriate here because that person might be allergic to cake or might not like cake. Is there a better word to use in this case?
